Puzzles? Reading? Yes – they ARE good for you!

Posted Jan 23 2012 8:21pm

In fact, if you are younger, and don't do puzzles -  start now and keep doing them … it's good for your brain –

According to a study :

Doing puzzles and reading books have been linked with a decreased risk of Alzheimer's disease, and a new study may explain why — it reduces the accumulation of harmful proteins in the brain.

I've always believed that games play the same role – they keep our brains active. And they provide, what I found, were some therapeutic results for people of many ages.

I am, and have been, a big game player.  I started out with pinball, moved on to amusement park arcades, video games and now computer games.

Just ask my son who played his video games more – him or me?  :)

I grew up with crossword puzzles and still do them. And the same with reading. Guess now I am glad I did so much of what others tended to call a "waste of time."
